2nd American Aid Worker With Ebola Arrives In US

Updated: Tuesday, August 5 2014, 03:40 PM CDT

The second American aid worker who was recently diagnosed with Ebola in west Africa has arrived in the Atlanta area for treatment.

She arrived in a jet at Dobbins Air Reserve Base in Marietta, Georgia, about 11:25 a.m. Tuesday.

After noon, an ambulance left the base.

The patient will be treated at an isolated unit at Emory University Hospital.

Although hospital officials haven't released her identity, the aid group she was working with has identified her as 59-year-old Nancy Writebol.

SIM says Writebol remains in serious but stable condition.

Dr. Kent Brantly, with North Carolina-based Samaritan's Purse, arrived in Atlanta for treatment Saturday. Both contracted Ebola while treating patients in Liberia.

Ebola has killed at least 887 people in four West African countries in what's considered one of the largest outbreaks ever.
